IWSG - THANK YOU!

The New Badge!

IWSG – February 2016

Despite reading that Cover Reveals are on their way out because folks are tired of seeing the same announcement numerous times (understandable) I ventured forth with one for my latest release.



I've waited for over a year to see Murder & Obsession hit the shelves, and I was beginning to believe it would never happen. But on Monday, the email arrived and the whole world changed. Murder & Obsession will be released on March 10th with new cover for all three books.


And then another email arrived and the IWSG Anthology Parallels: Felix Was Here cover was ready. My story Ever-Ton won a place. Wow, too cool. So while I still have insecurities galore - I'm celebrating good news.

I was over the moon by the response of blogging friends who wanted to help. Totally blown away! Therefore, this post is to say thank you to all of you for your amazing friendship and help in making the cover reveal the kind of announcement all writers dream of! Amazing!

THANK YOU!

  26. Are people really complaining about cover reveals? I've always thought it was a good idea. Yes, I've seen a few of the same cover reveal posts, but it's never offended me. To the contrary, so cool to see so much support in the blogging field.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The new covers are awesome looking, congrats! Yeah, I've never been a fan of the cover reveals. I like going to people's blogs to read some stuff, not see the same cover over and over :/ I mean, awesome support network, but still. Eh.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Congratulations, Yolanda. Your story Ever-Ton was wonderful, and I'm so glad it's in the anthology. I think even better things are coming your way.

  29. I hadn't seen the cover for the IWSG anthology yet. Awesome! And I'm jealous as heck that you'll be in it (and happy for you, all at the same time).
